~ My Review ~
I was really excited to read this one since I just finished my "book baby" and unsure what to do next. As much as I loved working with the small indie publishing company for my first book, I wanted to try self publishing. But as I know nothing, I wanted my research to be short and to the point, which is exactly what Mike Kowis does here. It's a quick read and he even offers up estimated monetary values - which is what I like.
The blurb pretty much sums up this book. It's a 14-step guide that will help you with what you need on your self-publishing journey. It doesn't sound all that daunting. 14 steps. No big deal, right?? And the way Mike lays it out, it doesn't sound too big of a task. It is a marathon, after all.
Rest up, writers. And see you on the other side.
